The Gospel Research Foundation is committed to long term
projects which accomplish the founding purpose.
I. Hebrew Heritage Translation
Existing translations of the Bible were birthed in a
rationalistic age which minimized the miraculous. Hebraic thought embraced the
world view in which God worked miracles to help people He loves. The imagery of
the Hebrew language conveyed the concept of divine compassion. The original
meaning of Jesus' teachings are often misunderstood because of the wrong
wording in English translations which ignore Hebrew thought and the miraculous
in Holy Scripture. The early followers of Jesus were Jewish. They told their
stories under the influence of their faith and culture.
The Hebrew Heritage Translation will seek dynamic equivalents in
English of the Greek text which will communi- cate the Hebrew meaning of the
sayings of Jesus. Present translations render the Greek text without thought
for the Hebraic perspective of early Christianity. Every reader should be able
to hear the words with a like-minded understanding similar to the original
audience who first heard the message.

II. Hebrew Heritage Study Bible
The Gospel Research Foundation is preparing a Hebrew Heritage
Study New Testament which will explore the Jewish background of Christianity.
Teachings from Judaism in the time of Jesus reveal fresh insight. Every
Christian will be helped to understand and appreciate the original meaning.
III. Rabbinic Textual Commentary on the New
The Gospel Research Foundation is preparing a major scholarly
commentary on the New Testament based upon the comparative study of rabbinic
literature, the Dead Sea Scrolls, historical writings, archaeology and all that
we can learn about ancient Judaism. This work should supersede the German
commentary written by Herman Strack and Paul Billerbeck. Comparing the
teachings of Jesus with Jewish texts reveals fresh perspective.
